Learn the Way as if guarding city walls;
Prevent the six thieves* during the day
and remain alert when night falls.
The general is capable of issuing orders:
Weapons are not to be raised to ensure peace.
── from Daming Gaoseng Zhuan (Biographies of Eminent Monks of the Ming Dynasty)
* “Six thieves” refer to the field of form, field of sound, field of odor, gustatory field, tactile field, and conceptual field.
